Gender-Free Role Term Usage 2

October 19th, 2017
gender, contra, roles  [html]

Update 2018-02-23: The version of this information that I'm keeping up to date is trycontra.com/roles.

More dances have switched to "Larks / Ravens", so here's an updated version of the chart I made before:

~312 series, ~130 weekends Gents / Ladies Various (series, weekends)
8 series, 5 weekends Larks / Ravens Berkeley, BIDA, Circle Left, Form the Ocean, Hayward, JP, LCFD Dance Camp (both coasts) Sebastapol, South Bay, Village Contra, YDW
1 series Bands / Barearms Rainbow Contra Dance of Western Mass, Queer Contra Chicago
1 series Jets / Rubies Portland ME
1 series Leads / Follows Brooklyn Contra

The biggest change is that [EDIT: nearly] all the "Bands / Bares" dances have switched to "Larks / Ravens", but there are also a few dances (BIDA, Sebastapol, YDW) that have swiched from "Gents / Ladies".

Update 2017-10-20: I've edited the chart above after learning that Rainbow Contra Dance of Western Mass is still using "Bands / Barearms".

What do executives do, anyway?

An executive with 8,000 indirect reports and 2000 hours of work in a year can afford to spend, at most, 15 minutes per year per person in their reporting hierarchy... even if they work on nothing else. That job seems impossible. How can anyone make any im…
